We will be having 3 separate cup competitions this year starting in January/February
The first cup will be the Presidents Cup. This is a cup for Premiership Teams and the Top 6 teams in division one on the 19th December.(Points per game) - As this will involve 17 teams there will be a 1 game preliminary round where the winners of this match will join the other 15 teams for a 16 teams straight knock out format.
The second cup is the Bob Little Trophy sponsored by Burnley Eats this will involve the bottom 6 teams from division 1 on the 19th December (Points per game) and the Reserves Teams in a 16 team straight knock out
So as you can see the positions in the division 1 table on the 19th of December (Points per game) will be important to determine the cup competition teams will be placed in.
The final of these two cups will take place on a double header at Padiham FC.
The third cup is the Peter Hargreaves Reserves Cup sponsored by Skinny Lager this cup will be for reserve teams only and will include a 4 team preliminary round where the 2 winners will join the other 6 teams in an 8 team knock out cup with the final to be played at an not yet decided neutral venue.
Please keep an eye on the website for the cup draws
Hope this makes sense and we have a great cup competition again this year.
